Currently consider purchasing a Roland SC-88VL for use on my laptop (which does not have MIDI interface), so I will be likely to take advantage of the Serial MIDI interface. The following I have found through my brief researches...
- Roland SC-88(VL) should be compatible with SC-55MkII (but some instruments are mapped differently with SC-55).
- I could use a Serial MIDI driver for Windows 95, while using SoftMPU for games in MS-DOS.
Then I started digging around for drivers and found it at an Edirol page (via Internet Archive), and found the driver over here:
And looking at the table, the Windows Serial MIDI driver to use is this:
But the problem is SC-88VL was not mentioned in the corresponding Readme file (http://web.archive.org/web/20050829103059/htt … 9895_readme.txt)... Only "SC-88" and "SC-88 Pro" are listed. Is it that Roland SC-88VL has some incompatibilities in regards of Serial MIDI interface? Or is it just unnecessary concerns?
Thanks in advance.
